Jordyn Blum is famous for being an American director as much as she is for being a former model and the spouse of the famous American musician, Dave Grohl. As a child, she always wanted to be an actress and a model – a dream which she slowly but steadily nursed to reality. At age 17, Blum started modeling for top brands and appearing in high profile photo sessions.
After quitting modeling, she ventured into the art of directing, getting involved in several projects. Truth be told, she definitely can’t be referred to as a top director yet, but it’s only a matter of time before she gets there, given the zeal and passion she puts into it.
Who Is Jordyn Blum?
This American director and producer was born on the 28th of May 1976, in Los Angeles, California. She is an American of white heritage. There is nothing known about her early educational background. However, she is said to have attended a high school in Los Angeles. Being a very private person, much isn’t known about her childhood as she rarely speaks about it.
Before she became a director, she had a very successful career in modeling. The 5 feet 7 inches tall diva had quite an impressive run as a model and it saw her work with top fashion brands in the United States. Nonetheless, her greatest achievement as a model was her appearance on the cover of Teen Magazine at the age of 17. Despite the success she recorded as a model, she decided to call it quits for reasons best known to her.
After the end of her modeling career, she found a job at MTV as a producer, before she decided to delve into directing. As a director, she isn’t doing badly. Over the years, she has directed several projects including the 2002 music video, Foo Fighters: Walking a Line. It seems she has found her true calling and doesn’t plan on quitting this profession any time soon.
Her spouse (Dave Grohl), Children, and Family
It’s no secret that Jordyn Blum’s husband, Dave Grohl, is an icon and the star in their union. He is one of the most recognized rock stars in the world and founder of the 13-times Grammy award-winning rock band, Foo Fighters. Starting his musical career as a drummer with Nirvana, he has gone all the way to attain heights he never thought were possible. In 2014, he got inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame, which led to him being dubbed “The Last True Ambassador of Rock”.
To a few people, he is simply known as the husband of Jordyn Blum. The most interesting thing about their marriage is how they met. Their paths first crossed in 2001, when he met her at the Sunset Marquis Whiskey Bar in West Hollywood, Ca. According to Grohl, he was extremely shy and lacked the courage to approach her. As a result of that, he had to get himself drunk to get the required boldness to talk to her.
After getting himself drunk, he finally summoned the courage and kick-started a conversation with her. After they’ve conversed for a long time, he wrote his number on a piece of paper and slipped it to her before taking his leave. Over time, they got emotionally attached to each other and then started dating. They dated for two years until the 2nd of August 2003 when the couple tied the knot.
It is important to note that this isn’t Grohl’s first marriage; he was once married to Jennifer Youngblood. Their union officially kicked off in 1994 and crashed in 1997.
The Jordyn-Dave marriage was first blessed with a daughter (Violet Maye) in 2006. In 2009, they had their second daughter and named her Harper Willow. The birth of their third child, another daughter they named Ophelia Saint came on the 8th of August 2014. Saint’s birth was very significant for the couple given the fact that she was birthed 6 days after their 11th wedding anniversary. The couple and their three beautiful daughters live happily together as a family in Los Angeles.
Being a very private person, almost nothing is known about her parent, siblings, and other relatives. This director has managed to find a way of keeping everything concerning her personal life tucked away from the prying eyes of the media.
Hopefully, we might one day get to know more about this beautiful diva but until then, we should be content with the amount of information made privy to us.
